Call for nominations for the International Children’s Peace Prize 2011

Date: 14th March 2011
Category: General measures of implementation, Civil Rights and Freedoms

The International Children's Peace Prize is an initiative of KidsRights and is presented annually to a child for his or her devotion to children's rights, anywhere in the world.

The goal of the Prize is twofold: it is a sign of recognition for the winners, and it also offers the winner a platform to promote his or her ideals and causes. In this way, the messages that these young heroes convey can reach a broader public, thereby making a greater impact in the promotion of children's rights.

The Children's Peace Prize is accompanied by an award of €100,000 to be invested in projects closely connected to the winner's area of devotion. Nominees for the Children's Peace Prize can come from any person, in any country, with knowledge of an exceptional child dedicated to promoting children's rights.

An independent Expert Committee assesses the applications and selects the final nominees.
